Can I Use Images in Formats Other Than Those Specified in This Document?

No, you cannot. Currently, only the VMDK, VHD, RAW, QCOW2, VHDX, QED, VDI, QCOW, ZVHD2, and ZVHD are supported.

Images of the -flat.vmdk format and image file packages containing snapshot volumes or delta volumes are not supported. You can use qemu-img to convert the format of an image into a supported one before uploading it to the cloud platform.

For how to install and use qemu-img on Windows, visit the following website:
